The market remained volatile across 2018 where the sell-off of October was one of the worst in seven years.

Also there will be an increase in the number of Chinese companies seeking US public markets, where many such companies are outpacing US companies in the US exchange IPOs e.g. Tencent Music. There are some companies in China such as Bytedance, Didi Chuxing and Lu.com -that may list on New York exchanges. The US Central Bank is expected to deliver the fourth interest rate hike amidst tightening cycles and growing economic turbulence. The biggest market risk is related to the investment outlook in China in the year 2019 where growth is predicted at 6.2 percent, which is one of the slowest since 1990s.

Most traders are optimistic about certain tech stocks in 2019 such as Microsoft cloud business which continued its growth in 2018 and its price can still move on. The price and volumes can increase.
